Working fire in Gary, 8-30-14

This from Eric Haak:

I took in this restaurant fire in Gary, Indiana on Saturday afternoon (8/30).  The fire was at 47th and Broadway and I was lucky enough to be at 35th and Broadway when the tones went out.  The fire started in the kitchen and was quickly brought under control.  Before anyone asks, the man in the civilian clothing was the owner and that image was taken within the first minute of companies arriving.  He moved away seconds later.  If you would have arrived five minutes later, there would have been nothing to see.  The last image is of Engine 5, which is the newest engine in their fleet.

Calumet Park house fire, 7-21-14

This from Eric Haak:

The Calumet Park Fire Department received a report of a structure on the 12400 block of South Honore at about 1920 hours on Monday evening (7-21-14).  Response time for the first engine and truck was less than two minutes.  Companies arrived to find the occupants outside and a fair amount of smoke pushing from the front door.  Companies made entry and quickly found the seat of the fire to be in a back bedroom.  Within three minutes of arrival, the Calumet Fire Department had the fire knocked down and held in check.  The fire did not extend to any other rooms or the attic.  Posen, Midlothian, Merrionette Park and Riverdale went auto-aid.
